  4. A Complete Introduction to Invisalign

In our introduction to Invisalign we will outline everything you’ll need to know during the initial stages of Invisalign including frequently asked questions and helpful hints.

How can I straighten my teeth without braces?

This is the question that most people will ask before they discover Invisalign – otherwise known as invisible braces. The fact is, this system is easily manageable for the patient and it certainly does not interfere with their lifestyle and appearance at all.

This is why we are passionate about making Invisalign available to our patients so they can benefit from:

• Removable aligners
• Transparent aligners
• An easy to clean system
• No change in diet

How does Invisalign move your teeth?

Invisalign works in the same way as traditional braces, only without the metal fittings. The Invisalign system uses gradual pressure applied to the teeth via the transparent aligners which are swapped every two weeks for continual improvement. These move the teeth over time into their ideal position so you will have a straight smile at the end of treatment.

How long does Invisalign take?

The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend on how well you follow your treatmentplan. Compliance is the biggest factor when it comes to your Invisalign treatment as if you miss one day of wearing your aligners this will extend your final result by another day. If you do follow your treatment plan diligently then treatment should take no longer than traditional braces. For a customised treatment time recommendation you will need to visit Sure Dental for a consultation.

Does dental insurance cover Invisalign?
Many insurance companies cover Invisalign as part of their orthodontic cover.
How much does Invisalign cost?
The cost of Invisalign varies between patient treatment requirements. The only way to receive a correct treatment cost is to visit Sure Dental for a consultation.
Sure Dental can perform all of the assessments to provide you with a detailed treatment plan. It’s important to know that Invisalign is not for everybody, as severe malocclusion can require surgical orthodontics or metal braces. Although we encourage you to find out more about Invisalign as it is the most lifestyle friendly way to straighten your teeth without braces.
